EVERY MOTHER COUNTS IS RUNNING THE 2017 TCS NYC MARATHON IN SUPPORT OF MATERNAL HEALTH AROUND THE WORLD.
Greetings and news, I’ve committed to run the NYC marathon this November!! By a fluke or perhaps really great Karma, I was offered the chance to participate in the marathon by the organization Every Mother Counts. I took a big breath and committed. Every Mother Counts is a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. They inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world. In 2016 they granted over $500,000 to 7 programs in 5 countries to address barriers to accessing quality maternal healthcare.Hundreds of thousands of women die during pregnancy and childbirth each year. That's 800 women every day. The good news is that 98% of these deaths can be prevented. EMC has the ability to help save these mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, teachers, doctors, caregivers and community leaders.
Thank you for your generous support of Every Mother Counts!
